LaFerrari Dominates Everything on the Track(19 hours ago)They're a special material called unobtanium, originally developed by oakley. It's a proprietary blend of chuck Norris beard hair suspended in a matrix of unicorn piss, similar to pre preg carbon fiber, only better.
LaFerrari Dominates Everything on the Track(19 hours ago)We don't have the p1 in this video so what it could or should do is neither here nor there, even tho of it was, the performance wouldn't embarrass the laferrari.really gives you an appreciation for the term hypercar.
Ford Shows Off F-150 Concepts Ahead Of SEMA(Oct 21, 2014)Where did the compensation joke come from? if you think about it, it doesn't really make sense. If the first thing you think about is penis size when you see this truck, you are probably a little bit gay.
C.J. Wilson's McLaren P1 Pitches 50 Shades of Purple(Oct 20, 2014)I think this is the type if car that this paint was made for, the organic lines of the car show off many of the variations in color. I probably wouldn't do it but I don't have millions to spend on toys. IMO it doesn't look bad.
12-Rotor Engine Is The God Of Wankel(Oct 19, 2014)Auto week claims that the garvin r12 can cruise around for 400 maintenance free hours naturally aspirated, I'd bet they'd need to put some oil in during that time.
12-Rotor Engine Is The God Of Wankel(Oct 19, 2014)This has only 19 moving parts,wankels have inherent sealing issues(apex seals vs piston rings), and they like to eat oil, but catastrophic failures are unlikely, as far as reliability goes.
Americans Still Think Kia Cars are Crap(Oct 15, 2014)I agree with Joshua,they need to build an ultra reliable performance car that they break even on.i think if they just straight up copied the supra with a contemporary body, mainly the drivetrain and put a decent suspension in it.
Sixth-Gen Camaro Spied Testing at the Ring(Oct 15, 2014)Rob-I have that same problem, i choose the troll theory because it would be really difficult to be that stupid. Another explanation is that English isn't their first language so they may not know exactly what they are saying.
BMW M3 Runs 11.66-Sec Quarter Mile(Oct 13, 2014)Bone stock these put out what their claimed output to the wheels(google) on 93 octane.103 race gas and a tune,I would bet that this particular car does get 500whp.
2,000 Horsepower GT-R is the Beginning and the End(Oct 13, 2014)This particular engine doesn't have cylinder sleeves, at 2000 hp my guess is that hard launches are discouraged. Rolling starts are where this shines anyway.best manifold I've seen on a gtr, reminds me of koenigsegg
Will Carbon Fiber Prices Drop 90%?(Oct 13, 2014)It's more complicated than that but mass production will bring carbon prices per unitway down, decrease weight, increase mpg and as well as performance.
Will Carbon Fiber Prices Drop 90%?(Oct 13, 2014)Carbon fiber isn't that expensive, manufacturers can charge an exorbitant sum because people believe that it's super exclusive.pinarello bicycle frames sell for >$5,000 US.you. Can buy the same unbranded carbon frames for a few hundred direct from mfg
Will Leno Bring a New Car Show to Primetime TV?(Oct 12, 2014)He's in a position in which others may try to take advantage of him. It makes sense for him to be a bit of a prick, but he does have a sense of humor. Its not uncommon to hear about tv personalities being assholes.
Will Leno Bring a New Car Show to Primetime TV?(Oct 12, 2014)How many other people let you into their private garage to view some awesome cars?He's worked hard to get where he is,I think he's earned the right to act in a way that can be abrasive to some.He didn't get where he is by letting people walk all over him
Dodge's Desperation To Sell Vipers Pays Off(Oct 08, 2014)If they know they've got you then they won't negotiate very much. Cars.com is a good resource, I'm always on there looking at car prices and configuring the car differently
Dodge's Desperation To Sell Vipers Pays Off(Oct 08, 2014)Dan try shopping around and look in the lots for deals, get them to come down on price and then tell them that you want one to your specs if they don't have it, then order it. They know that you want the car when you go in to order it
Dodge's Desperation To Sell Vipers Pays Off(Oct 08, 2014)High-I'm not sure the high price does reflect r&d. It's based on the old platform with suspension tweaks, slight engine enhancements, and an X brace. There isn't much to it. I think the price was set to try to support the srt racing program. IMO
